3.8/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web
Architecture lovers and politics buffs will enjoy seeing Presidential Office Building--the tallest structure in Taiwan at the time of its construction. Completed in 1919, the building initially acted as the seat of the colonial government. After damage sustained in World War II bombings, Chen Yi restored the edifice to its former glory and it later became the presidential office in 1950. Though the structure faces east, giving it excellent views of Shishou Mountain, visitors can only view it from outside. Stop by to admire the historic building and snap a few photos.

  • Built during the reign of Japan, once so destroyed in the air raid. This is the building I was viewing the scenery from this tour that can be like so next time take us out. To visit passport is required.

  • It is a respectable building. Stop and take a picture from the sidewalk and gathered the guards. It seems not good apparently stopped on the sidewalk.

  • This is president's office. It is an old building built in 1919 by Japanese. Sometime it will be open to public during weekend or holidays. Check its schedule on official website for more details. There are photo shoot platforms in front of the building. Go there and you will get a better photo. The building looks different when day and night, and I like it personally when lights on

  • Thanks to president Ma, president Tsai, so that we can have a better Taiwan. I love you guys.
  • Historical site. A must-see.
  • Even though it was builded by Great Japanese Empire but it still has its place in Taiwan.
